I have always brought my phones firstly on 'does it do what I want' then want do other people think of it.... To date my judgement choice has always been spot on, this phone is one of those good choices.
Looks, quality of build and features are perfect for the 'ordinary' phone user and the phone 'geeks'. Don't worry about the qwerty keyboard size, I have large digits and only hit the wrong keys when I forget how to spell a word. When texting it's a little disappointing that there is no facility to go to recently used contacts, but getting to the desired contact only needs a few presses to get there.Size is the best ever for a phone with the amount of features this has, it gets a little warm after lengthy calls, but with a battery that powers so many tasks at the same time, what do you expect? Speaking of battery power, I have seen reviews that say it does not last long..... my battery lasted for 4+ days before a recharge and that was with internet, email calls and text applications open and in use frequently, I only recharged it at that point because I was afraid it might die on me during day 5 !!! Camera could be better but I have produced some quality shots that you would be hard pushed to tell they had been taken with a 3.2 megapixal camera. (Tip, master the auto focus before complaining about the poor picture quality ). I would recommend this to all if you need email, text photo and word/pdf/excel use on a phone...it does it all. A minor downside and it is trivial, is the case. It's well built but does not allow for easy phone retrieval when you get a call. Easily worth a 9.5 out of ten following 20 years of 'picky' phone ownership. Hope you enjoy your E71.
I have read a lot of user experiences.Thanks a lot for sharing your experiences.
I have a few questions before opting for this fone.
I will be really grateful if i get answer to all of these.
1 How is the sound quality in context of the following :
a. Music i.e MP3
i. With Earplugs
ii. Without earphones i.e. Loud Speaker
b. Ring Tone Volume in crowded places.
c. While watching a vedio on you tube.
2. Is the camera quality fine as compared to other 3.2 MP phones like n73 or other nokia phones???
3 How is the web surfing experience and mails, can we send and view mails with attachments and if yes is it a smooth process or are there lags. In case if we surf using the wi-fi.
It will be really appreciable if the answers to my question can be relative, i mean in comparison to other phones. Like for sound and all, a comparitive review with N73 or any other music fone.
Thanks in advance frendz.

pls tell me can we use outlook express and can we see and send attachments. mainly pics, excel and word files??? pls reply, urgent..

I love this phone!
It peactically has everything you need and even some things you don't. It can be used by a 'regular' user or a business user.
I can't say anything about the battery atm, because I only have it for about two days. It should get to it's max after 10 refills. So no worries if the first days it doesn't last long.
The keyboard is really handy for typing emails, texting, sending MMSes, anything really.
The camera is good enough, tho you have to autofocus by yourself by pressing the T key, it not it will not do it alone. But that's not a real problem.
Surfing on the net is great, especially if you can acess a WLAN to stay on.
The shortcuts are great (press call to send a fast message after writing it), press the navi button after it go into 'sleep' mode to see the clock .. and so on.
I really like it, and for now this one is my favorite phone ever.
I like it better for typing than the iphone.
I recommend it. 10/10
